And here's an ICS tablet for 60 bucks
If you are on a very tight budget, or simply don't feel like spending north of $99 for a tablet, the Matrix One might be just the right model for you. Initially sold for the affordable price of $90, the Matrix One tablet by Digital Merchandise Marketing (DMM) has now been discounted to $59, making it a pretty decent deal.

Sure, you can't expect wonders at this price, so naturally the Matrix One isn't the most impressive device on paper. With a screen of 7 inches and WVGA resolution, 512MB RAM and a single-core A8 1.5GHz processor, the Matrix One certainly won't blow you mind. Still, the user experience may actually be OK, considering that it's running Android 4.0.3 ICS. Plus, it doesn't have any additional software layers to eat up system resources. As a matter of fact, it's coming rooted out of the box, which is an interesting feature. Some of its other goodies include Wi-Fi, 4GB internal storage, microSD slot, microUSB, full-sized USB port, mini HDMI and a 2MP front-facing camera for video chats and other stuff.

If you like what you see, you can order the DMM Matrix One tablet right here. Did you order yours already?

Even better for my 5 year old who has already downloaded 5,021 apps on my tablet. Now I can feel comfy and not have to worry about spills and dropping my 600 tab. (I'm leaving out my tab model because it's simply just a comment and I'm not going to fuel a Android vs. iOS war) Drop this all you want, I'll buy this thing in 4 packs. LOL

I sincerely hope that it doesn't make use of the Allwinner A10 chipset, that's a slow processor and also a power hog

I am seriously considering this as a christmas gift for my kids. I have almost 6 year old triplets that just started kindergarten. I have learning games on my ipod touch and Nook Color for them, but there is just too much fighting between them to keep everyone happy because there is always one waiting for her turn. With access to the Play store, I am sold on this tablet at this price point. My girls are too young to need or even comprehend the difference between a kick a$$ tablet and one of these. I'll be ordering 3 as soon as I get home from work!
